We've seen the benefits of Teaching Assistants within our sciences at the college level, but there is very little, if any, research on a successful implementation strategy for introducing Student Teaching Assistants to the high school computer science classroom. How can my students stay motivated through the iterative learning process native in CS? How can we smooth out the steep learning curve of our challenging subject matter? How can I retain my talented students whom have finished their courses with me? How can I find task relief during class? These were all questions I've mulled over the past few years and found the answer to be in front of me the whole time. The positive results and benefits of introducing a Student Teaching Assistant to the CS classroom are large. Teachers needs to know how to accomplish this and I am in a very credible position to share how.
